mysql mythconverg -u mythtv -p
truncate table program;

I then deleted all the myth files in /tmp and ran
/usr/bin/mythfilldb.sh again.  No luck--same problem.

I re-ran the sdxmltvsetup.sh script again.  Same
problem and I'm into this SD conversion hell for at
least two hours of debug and web searching! :(

Finally i truncated table program again, deleted files
in /tmp AND re-ran sdxmltvsetup.sh again on an empty
program table.  Finally--I think the database in my
EPG is correct. Arghhh!
